Woman Attaches Camera To Bird Feeder And Captures 30 Stunning Images.

Wild birds are a true joy for the countless people who enjoy watching them.

A woman named Lisa, who goes by Ostdrossel online, has found a way to capture these majestic animals in vivid detail using a bird feeder camera she designed herself. After she moved from Germany to rural Michigan in 2012, she was thrilled to discover a vibrant community of birds living in her backyard — and knew she had to capture their beauty!

“There was so much color and diversity, different from what I was used to in city life,” she explained. “I wanted to share them with my family in Germany and so I started feeding birds and taking photos.”

1. “I enjoy seeing the beauty of the bird anatomy, the delicate patterns, the feathers, the colors, and of course their antics,” she said.
